So many of you have been on this new baby journey with me throughout the past 8 months. I am so thankful for all the love and support I have received and I feel so blessed to share this fun time of my life with you. On July 6th, 2013 I discovered (with a little shock) that I was pregnant. I remember calling my husband, Ben who was in New York at the time at a wedding and telling him on the phone at 3am that I tried ten pregnancy tests and that we have a baby on the way. He laughed and cried and repeatedly told me how much more love he feels for me now more than ever. We both held our phone’s by our ears while lying in bed on opposites coasts crying and laughing and feeling joyful. At that moment Ben prayed for me that I would have a breeze of a pregnancy, and that’s exactly what it has been.
Having a child grow in you is something you can’t explain to anyone. I was never one to think about having children. It was something I wanted eventually, but my career and other things always came first. I look at the past 8 months of this little adventure and preparing my heart to welcome our little girl into our lives and I couldn’t feel more blessed than I do now.
As many of you know, my husband and I work together as wedding and family photographers so it was such fun when one spontaneous afternoon a few weeks ago, we decided to hit the beach and take a few pictures of me. Being the person in front of lens this time is actually a lot of fun. Both Ben and I ended up swimming in the ocean with all our clothes on after the photo shoot. Got to love southern California in the middle of winter!
Thank you friends for your prayers and wishes. We are sending you all love from us and little baby Sophia!
With love and blessings,
